What is a Celebration?

Got this in an email from Rohan couple of weeks back. Remembered it after last night and appended my own celebration in the end. Read on...

Maggi noodles.
A hostel room.
4.25 a.m.

A winter evening.
Four friends.
One barsaat.
Four glasses of chai.

Hundred bucks of gas.
A rusty old bike.
And an open road.

3 old friends.
3 separate cities.
3 coffee mugs.
1 internet messenger.

Rain on a hot tin roof.
Pakoras deep-frying.
Neighbours dropping in.
A party.

You and mom.
A summer night.
A bottle of coconut oil.
A head massage.
Gossiping about absent family members.

You can spend hundreds on birthdays, thousands on festivals, lakhs on weddings, but to celebrate all you have to spend is your Time.

And mine...

One Hotel Room in Hong Kong.
Two business travellers.
Music playing in the laptop.
MTR Upmaaaaa....!

It doesn't take much after all.
